Oxford Brookes University – Motorsport Engineering

“I’ve always had an interest in motorsport and I’ve been competing since my early teenage years. After Wilberforce I studied MEng Motorsport Engineering at Oxford Brookes University and I’m now working full time in Formula One. Wilberforce was a more adult environment than school and being taught by people who made the courses interesting created an enjoyable experience. I’ve got a lot of good memories of the social side of college too.”
